15 mins into counting, he knew PAP lost Aljunied #SGelections

15 mins into counting, he knew PAP lost Aljunied #SGelections

MR ONG Ye Kung is looking forward to tomorrow. And tomorrow, he will be looking forward to the day after. 'It's a blow, though you psyched yourself up to be prepared for it,' he says softly, almost under his breath. 'But today, I felt better than yesterday. And tomorrow, I will feel better than today,' says the 41-year-old, his usual poker face now etched with the pain of his loss. Casting his mind back to the night of May 7, he says that a mere 15 minutes into the counting of the votes, he knew the battle was lost. His ward, Kaki Bukit, is the furthest from WP stronghold Hougang, and so is considered the 'strongest' among the five in the GRC. 'When the vote count was 50-50, I knew it was over.' Read the full story in Tuesday's edition of The Straits Times.
